I’ve been curious about the Nulo brand since I first heard about it on social media a few years ago. Some of the athletes I followed at the time posted about it, but I’m pretty sure when they first launched, Nulo only had a line of dry kibble. Teton had been through a range of foods so I wasn’t interested, but now that they have a line of treats, well, say no more!
Chewy.com sent us a bag of Nulo’s Freestyle Grain-Free Duck Recipe with Plum Jerky treats earlier this month. These treats are made in the USA and slow-cooked in a smokehouse so your dog’s sniffer will go a mile a minute when you tear open the bag.
Speaking of tearing open the bag, one mind-blowing feature that Nulo has going for them is the use of a Velcro-like material to seal their bags. With this feature, you won’t run the risk of not zipping it tight and causing the treats to get stale. Plus, it’s fun to open and close! (I’m easily amused, apparently.)
The Freestyle Grain-Free Duck Recipe with Plum Jerky treat variety is made with a limited ingredient list that I love. Here are the three main ingredients:
- Sweet potatoes
And one of the coolest ingredients of all is Nulo’s patented BC30 probiotic, Dried Bacillus coagulans Fermentation Product. You got all that, right? 😉
Essentially, this BC30 probiotic is is a strain the supports your dog’s gut.
The older Teton gets, the more I notice he prefers soft treats and/or treats that are only slightly crunchy. The Nulo Freestyle treat line (spoiler alert – they have other varieties!) is great because they’re soft and easily torn into the appropriate size for your dog.
